San Francisco Softens ‘Stigma’ For Lawbreakers; Here’s The New Term For Convicted Felon

San Francisco board rebrands ‘convicted felon’ as ‘justice-involved person plus sanitizes other crime lingo too.

Doublespeak is the classic sign that the Democrats who control these cesspools have gone off the rails and over the cliff and are never coming back.

Today the Democrats despise each and every citizen who actually thinks, cares and has a job. They are the party of the permanent victim class and their goal is to eventually turn every one of us into a permanent victim.
